Books for sale – posted September 15, 2022

The family of a previous guild member, Marie Merrithew, have given the following books to the guild to sell. We will keep 50% of the proceeds with the rest going back to the family.

The prices listed are a bit lower than the prices which could be found on-line. We thought it appropriate for guild members to have a discount from the listed price. All books appear to be in good shape and stored well.

All sales would need to either be picked up at the guild room, or at Sue Peters’ house, or I could do a drop off within London.

If interested in any of the books. Please contact Sue Peters @ sue.peters.ca@gmail.com. All payments will go to the guild either through an e-transfer to ldwsfinance@gmail.com or a cheque or cash to Donna
